Leicester Art Gallery Model

leave a comment »

So This model was for a meeting with the clients to show them what the spaces would look like. there were a few changes to the plans i was working on during the model making process so a few things had to be changed ad hok but i think the result was really good. I think the pressure of it being for professional clients and for a professional business made me strive to do my best. It is by  far the best model and the most complicated so i am overall very pleased with the outcome.  Obviously I only take credit for making the model, the design, plans and elevations are by marshgrochowski architects

Leicester Digital Media Centre Site Visit

leave a comment »

I was lucky enough to be invited to visit the site of the leicester digital media centre deisgned byt marsh grochowski, which is in its final stages. I waswent round with an architect from the practice and two building inspectors from the local authority to put together a snagging list.

Here are a few photos from the site, mainly from the outside as i dont want to show pictures of the inside until its been finished and open to the public.

It was really nice after years of just seeing designs on paper to see some thing bweing build physically. It was a really good expereince.

Grand Designs for a Placement

leave a comment »

Ok so I start my placement with Marsh Grochowski on June 16th. Very much a relief to find that out as I was running out of time to get a placement, and happen to land one with my favorite practice in Nottingham. I was flicking through my Grand Designs magazine yesterday (12 issues for £20 subscription offer with free ticket to Grand designs Live and free gift- get onto it) when i found this page, featuring Marsh Grochowski.

Grand Designs is a national magazine, and I didn’t quite realise that Marsh grochowski were this well known, which makes me even more confident that I will learn alot from this placement.

Interview

leave a comment »

Todays the day, my interview with Marsh Grochowski!

The company  itself are perfect for me as alot of their ideas are similar to mine, and they have a good stance with the latest trend of eco- development.

It would be really nice if i got the job as i feel i have been punished a little bit for not wanting to leave Nottingham to the dizzy heights of London, as most of the companies here are often quite small and  stuckvery much to mundayne tasks such as conservatory and extention layouts and builidng regs.

Here are a few snap shots of a few things they have done that are are similar to ideas ive had in the past.
